Wow, long time, no post, huh?


It certainly has been awhile, hasn't it? Guess I can blame it on life. It just seems to get in the way sometimes, doesn't it?

Oh, well....I wanted to stop by and let you know about the Sunshine Studio Scraps Valentine's Day Blog Train. (image)

It starts on the SUN blog and I have something there for those of you who choose to ride along and collect some Sunshine love.

Happy Scrapping and I will see you next time!

Wow, It's been a while...


I was sitting here on my last day of my 3 day weekend and realized how long it really has been since I posted last. I am sorry that I have not updated before now. I did not fall off the earth, LOL I have just been super busy with work and I am currently battling back problems. I am hoping that physical therapy will help as I am going to Florida in a few months and want to have a good time.

In Sunshine news, we have a few new designers and a whole new crop of Sunshine Sweeties. The designers also have a new Collaboration Grab Bag for only $3.00 for the entire month of September!


Here is the layout that I made using Boy Zone

That is all for now, Wonder Girl Janel, signing out until next time.

Live from the 93rd Indy 500



Well, as I sit here in the stands, it certainly is fairly hot for this time of year. There is a little breeze and some rain on the radar to the south. It has been pretty cool up until this week.

The singing of "Back Home Again in Indiana", the National Anthem and the military fly over were awesome as always. They also did a 21 gun salute and played Taps to honor the military men and women who have lost their lives. After all, that is what Memorial Day is really all about. Remembering those who have given their lives to defend our country.

There was a bad start when some drivers jumped ahead before they reached the Yard of Bricks. They had to come around and line up again to start again! Then there is a wreck in the first lap. This could prove to be a very interesting race! And as I am writing this, in lap 21 there is another wreck! This could definitely be a very interesting race!

Happy Birthday Laura!


Wow, two, yes TWO birthdays in one week that I need to make wishes (and cupcakes!) for. So today, I would like to wish my fellow Wonder Girl Laura a very Happy Birthday. I hope you have a most 'wonder'ful day!!

I want to wish a good friend of mine, Ale, a very Happy, Happy Birthday. I hope you have an amazingly "wonder"ful day!!

Wishing Everyone a Hoppy Easter


Just wanted to “hop” on to my blog and wish everyone a Happy Easter and share the card (alright, tag!) that I made for my family.


Any guesses on where I am at today???



My brother, sister-in-law, and niece have been visiting me for the last few days for spring break. We decided that since the weather was going to be nice we would go to St. Louis to explore for a couple days. I snapped this pic of the Gateway Arch with my phone so I could share.
Sent via Janel's BlackBerry.

Yep, it’s Spring!!!


at least until tomorrow...


But today it looked like this!
(image) But they are predicting snow again, boo.



I think that it might finally be here.  It seems like I have waited quite a while for it to show up this year.  Here is why I think it might be here:


I was wearing my winter coat, and my hands were freezing, but I was wandering around the grounds of the local art museum and their Magnolia tree was really trying to convince me it is spring.


I can’t wait to see what will bloom next!

Wonder Girls Beach Party…


…beach number 5.

G’day Mates! Wonder Girl Janel joining you on Bondi Beach, just outside of Sydney, Australia! I hope that you had a “wonder”ful time visiting with Teri in Waikiki!

I am having such a wonderful time here at Bondi Beach! I am so glad you could join me to enjoy the blue skies. How about we just wander up and down the beach listening to the surf and enjoying ourselves. Isn't this just a beautiful place to relax and just enjoy life.



Have you been picking up the designer party favors along the way? I sure hope so! You should have 4 so far. Bondi Beach is the last beach of the Wonder Girls beach party, so you will now have the complete set of "Designer Extras" that coordinate with the Bahama Mama collab by the Sunshine Studio Designers.


Download your last party favor, here!

Well it is time to leave this lovely beach and head on back home. If you missed any of the beaches, hop back on the plane and head back to the first beach on the SUN blog.

If you end up at one of the beaches and one of us are not there yet to greet you, please be patient and wait for us. These "wonder"ful beaches are a little far apart and it might take us a few hours to get there!

That is all for now, Wonder Girl Janel, signing out until next time.

I wanted to take the time of my busy schedule this week to wish a good friend of mine, Teri, a very Happy Birthday. I was going to make actual cupcakes and send them, but I figured they would not have survived the US postal service. In lieu of sending the cupcakes, I though about Teri as I ate the frosting out of the can!!! I hope you have an amazingly "wonder"ful day!!

(image) * Thanks to Flergs for the BYOC (build your own cupcake!)

eeek I’ve been gone for a while…


…no, I did not fall of the earth! Thank goodness for gravity! I have just been really busy and very neglectful of my blog.

It is supposed to be a beautiful day today, about 70 F, and as I sit and write this I can hear the birds outside. Can it be?? Is spring finally on it’s way?? One can only hope! Think I will go out later and try to find it!

I have a few scrappy things to share:

Lots of new stuff at Sunshine Studio Scraps, including this fun Collab kit by Polka Dot Plum and Amy Sumrall Designs.


and the new monthly collab is out. I can’t wait to play with this one!


and finally, SUN has a new challenge system and great new challenges. Check out our Race Track.


That is all for now, Wonder Girl Janel, signing out until next time.

Oakland Golden Grizzlies Win!


Oakland wins over the IUPUI Jaguars 72-63. Kira (#35) had probably half the arena filled with her fans! Gotta root for the hometown girl!!


ADSR4 Challenge 12


Both players must collaborate on one project.

Create a layout that expresses what storytelling means to each of you.

Your story must include:

  • {we are} storytellers word-art provided, you may alter the word-art if you would like.
  • At least 1/2 of the layout must be journaling, more the better
  • At least 5 elements/embellishments
  • No more than 2 pieces of paper
  • Only 2 small photos; 1 of each of you, placed in the bottom right hand area of your page.



ADSR4, Challenge Number 11


This one required a little thought on my part...

You can ask any one person (dead or alive; family, friend, famous or foe) one question. Who would it be and what would you ask them?
Here are some layout requirements:
1. Your layout can have only ONE photo. The photo must either be of the person to whom you are posing the question OR must represent the question you are asking.
2. You MUST include your question in your layout and your question can be the ONLY words/journaling on your layout.


ADSR4, Challenge Number 10


Challenge 10 was pretty easy for me, my partner was the one who had to do all the work! LOL

Roadblock-only 1 persom may do this challenge. (Turns out it is jaye that has to do this challenge because I did the scraplift your partner challenge, #6.)

Interview your partner
You must ask at least 5 questions
Include a picture
Use 2 designers

So, here is what the interview turned into:

I think that she did an amazing job capturing both of our personalities in this layout!
